This way applications will have a better migration path after the [JEP 400](https://openjdk.java.net/jeps/400) is implemented, in which Charset.defaultCharset() will return UTF-8, but the value of this new system property will remain intact. A [CSR](https://bugs.openjdk.java.net/browse/JDK-8266075) has been filed with more detailed information.
Unless there is some use case other than for migration, I would not introduce a static method as Alan mentioned.
